I have a contributor to my github repository who has a fork and is working on a branch. I want to pull their branch to my own branch and make modifications, but still track theirs. Can I configure git so that while I’m on branch foo, git pull pulls from contributor/foo and git push pushes […]
I have a single repo in which I have 2 user groups: Admins HTML/UI Developers I do not wish to give read/write access of my master branch to my HTML developers as they do not need to work on it and should not be misusing the core code. Though they need to work on their […]

Also, we have redmine […]
